The DesertA Poem by *~*Butterfly Kisses*~*
Recently took a trip to Arizona and saw some of the desert. I fell in love with my surroundings.
An endless empty wasteland
Glimmering in the sunlight
As golden specks fly and dance
Across the seas of tan and gold.
Skulls and shells
Lost creatures of the past
Lay paralyzed, littering the ground
Defeated by their own time.
In the mountainous horizon
A storm of pure blackness
Electric whips strike the atmosphere
As it continues to brew in its rage.
Faint sounds gather in the winds
Growing stronger by the minute
Voices of coyotes singing their songs
Awestruck by the lyrical masters of nature.
Wild horses embraced in their freedom
To soar the empty horizons of this oasis.
I get lost in my thoughts, jealous
Of their will to be free and run wild.
A barren landscape, gone untouched
Dryness and death, but so full life
A diamond in the rough of everlasting beauty
One of Mother Earth's best kept secrets.
